Re: Jaws Announcing Selected Text
I’m guessing this isn’t the answer, but just in case. Notepad, Windows 10-1809, latest release of JAWS 19.
Whether JAWS reports the number of characters selected depends on which text selection level I choose. I will be told the number of charazcters if I select all (control-a) or from focus to end of text (shift-control-down arrow). However, if I select with just shift-down arrow, JAWS does not give me this information.

Subject: [jaws-users] Jaws Announcing Selected Text
Running Windows 7 & 10 pro with J16 thru J2019 latest. When selecting all the text in a text / Notepad file Jaws used to report how many characters wer selected, but not any more. What or where do I need to go to find this setting so I can get this function back? All help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks mooy moocho.
